Harvests, healthy water systems and hanepoot grapes… here’s what we’ve been up to.


We’ve almost completed our harvest, and by all accounts, it’s been a very successful one. Beginning over a month ago with Chardonnay for our MCC, we have just finished picking our white varietals and will be picking our Merlot grapes soon.

In the last weekend in February, Constantia Uitsig took part in Constantia Fresh at Buitenverwachting, as did Open Door. The weather was perfect, the mood was relaxed and everyone enjoyed themselves. At our table, our bubbly and Sauvignon Blanc were firm favourites on the day.

The new sewer line to take the old one out of the wetland has been completed. It was an extensive project that now ensures much healthier water flowing in and out of our farm.

The Bike Park at Constantia Uitsig continues to grow and develop into a world-class pump track. The sky bridge with corkscrew exit, wooden berm and rock garden are now all complete – with the Bike Barn following closely behind.

Our famous hanepoot grapes have been flying out of the wine shop as fast as we can pick them. If you haven’t gotten round to collecting a box yet, best you hurry!
